Tours that include Antalya
Turkey is quickly becoming one of the world’s most popular destinations, with exotic food, beautiful architecture and scenery, and a unique, mesmerising culture. Located on the beautiful Mediterranean coastline is the city of Antalya, the coastal gateway to Turkey.
At over 2000 years old, this city will take more than a few hours to explore and absorb. Hire yourself a bicycle or hit the streets with a good pair of joggers and uncover centuries of stories, along with many a local gem.
- Kaleiçi - The Old Quarter
- Bi-Cycle or Walking tours on the Streets of Antalya
Kaleiçi, the old quarter, is the oldest part of the city, dating back to 150BC. Lined with ancient walls, you are literally surrounded in history in the old quarter. There are plenty of tourist traps, granted, but some of the most exquisite, ancient architecture of the city is located within these walls. Of course, Antalya is more than just a pile of ruins and rubble. It is a bustling, coastal city, with plenty of incredible food and shopping options to keep you run off your feet, and more beautiful swimming spots than you could hope to sample.
Take time out of your cultural and historical tour to relax at the beach, or even board a boat and view the city from afar (after ensuring you get a fair price for your trip, and not the tourist price).
There is no shortage of beautiful keepsakes to purchase in Antalya, but there can be restrictions about what you can bring home with you through customs, so it can be helpful to have a bit of guidance about what to splurge on and what to avoid when shopping for trinkets.
